Gartner gives high marks to open source vendors in its new Magic Quadrant for Advanced Analytics.
For eight years now, Gartner has been issuing a Magic Quadrant (MQ) for business intelligence. The rise of advanced analytics has been so strong and sustained that the analyst firm has split off that portion of BI into its own MQ.
Until now, Gartner’s review has tended to focus on the traditional query and reporting capabilities of the various BI vendors. But as data visualization, predictive and prescriptive analysis have risen in popularity and sophistication, there has been a tendency for organizations to deploy multiple tools, for example a full-fledged business intelligence platform from an established vendor supplemented by analytics tools from a startup.
